Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) or domestic violence is extremely common affecting women, and sometimes men, of all ages, ethnicities and sexual preferences. IPV can have physical, mental and emotional short and long term consequences. Effective screening and assessment is key in identifying the abuse and supporting the victim to access resources to interrupt the cycle of violence. This course provides a toolkit with detailed information for public health providers to become more knowledgeable in screening, documentation and management practices and patient resources for domestic abuse. The toolkit was developed using California Health and Safety codes and reporting laws and can be revised to reflect the codes and laws of a given state.

Asthma is life-threatening when students do not have the tools to manage symptoms effectively. The stock albuterol inhaler program provides an albuterol inhaler to be kept in the school health office (e.g., stock albuterol) in the event that a student is experiencing respiratory distress and does not have access to their own rescue inhaler.

Never has the time been so critical to focus more on how to turn research into public health promotion and practice. It is time to clarify what the research data is telling us and how does that translate into what we need to do in public health. Recently at CDC’s Division of HIV AIDS Prevention, CDC required that presentations had to highlight how research informed or impacted public health practice. To solve our nation’s and world’s problems, we need research to be well linked and translated into practice.
